Just beautiful, Alan. What a creamy, perfect look you achieved with the finish. And the beaded leg design is understated elegance. I like that the breadboard end does not overhang the table frame too much, it’s just right. I’ll bet your clients were very happy! Very nice work, again.

This really complements the high-back chairs. Great looking table!

That is an amazing piece! I am in the process of making a similar table, and I think your breadboard ends have made my decision.

How many pieces of pine is the top made of? And are the legs mortise and tenon?

Any chance you will have a blog post with more pictures?
